Phoenix Suns star Kevin Durant he is expected to miss two to three weeks with a sprained left ankle, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Thursday.
The team said in a statement that Durant has a sprained left ankle and will be reevaluated in three weeks.
Durant, who underwent an MRI on Thursday, slipped and injured his ankle during warmups for Wednesday’s game, sidelining him from what was supposed to be his first home game with the Suns.
He left the Footprint Center in a walking boot after Phoenix defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 132-101.
“I feel bad for him because he feels bad,” Suns coach Monty Williams said after the game. “I saw his face and, I’ve been around him many times, I know what he feels and I don’t want him to feel that way.”
Durant has played in three games with the Suns since being acquired from the Brooklyn Nets, averaging 26.7 points, 7.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists. Durant has shot 69% with Phoenix in those three wins, the highest field goal percentage in a player’s first three games with a team in NBA history (minimum 40 field goals attempted), according to ESPN.
